Memorial Day Dinner, Monday May 26

So what is everyone planning for today? Picnics? Lunches? Dinners? All-day spreads?

I'm going to grill this evening, burgers and pork chops, with sides of coleslaw and macaroni salad.

My go to the local ice cream stand this afternoon for cones. They put almost a pint of ice cream on a doublel cone!!!!

Sounds delicious, Dave.......will probably get son to grill some brats, then bake some beans, present some salad and bread. There's a watermelon that's been cooling in the fridge.......it's so hot now.......

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

We're grilling burgers and grill-roasted potatoes, with cole slaw for DH and salad for me. Lemon cheesecake for dessert.

We'll be grilling turkey burgers (if it doesn't storm later). Also going to make some potato salad and a key lime pie.

Not sure what we'll do if it rains, maybe spaghetti with turkey meatballs.

I've made baked beans, potato salad and homemade hamburger buns. Still have to frost the cinnamon-zucchini bars for dessert. Will mix up the burgers just before time to eat.

We'll have mint juleps to kick off cocktail hour before dinner.

  • pico de gallo type mixture but I added avocado, shrimp, and jennyema's habaneros!
  • smoked beer butt chicken
  • corn on the cob
  • broccoli salad
  • spinach, feta, tomato salad
  • grilled red-skinned potato slices rubbed with tarragon/olive oil/salt/pepper
  • If I get my act together I'll do potato salad too

I'm sure I'm forgetting something
